"Artistic director William Whitener is a former Twyla Tharp dancer who recently staged the Joffrey’s revival of “Deuce Coupe,” Tharp’s groundbreaking work set to the Beach Boys. The company makes its New York debut at Evening Stars with three works, including Tharp’s “The Catherine Wheel Suite,” a reworking of her 1981 full-evening collaboration with David Byrne, “The Catherine Wheel.” While many companies perform “The Golden Section” from “Wheel” (as Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater will do in December), Whitener’s new version also features “Dinosaur” and “Cloud Chamber” and has never been seen."
